Pinterest Strikes Again

I love Pinterest. Once you figure it out, I don’t really know how anyone can’t.  I have boards filled with inspiration for food, a future dream home, future kids, you name it. I took inspiration last night for a recipe I found on Pinterest for Ginger and Cilantro Baked Tilapia. I adjusted the recipe slightly based on what we had on hand.

1/4 white onion, 1 clove garlic, 1 handful cilantro, 1 jalapeno, 2 inches ginger (peeled), juice of 1 lime, salt and pepper and olive oil.

Into the food processor

So pretty.

In a baking dish coated with cooking spray, place fish (we used mahi mahi), coat with pureed mixture, add about 1/2 cup white wine, 1 inch ginger chopped, 1.4 onion thinly sliced, 8 halved cherry tomatoes and 1/2 cup light coconut milk.

Bake uncovered at 450 until fish is cooked through and flaky. This will depend on thickness of fish. Our mahi steaks were about 1/2 inch thick and took about 20 minutes.

Serve with sauce, fresh green onions and cilantro and rice.  This would be great in a bowl with plain brown rice.  But I made a super easy cilantro lime rice.  Just brown rice, greek yogurt, lime juice, cilantro, green onion, and a little of the pureed mixture that I coated the fish with. Yum!

I dubbed this Tahi-Mexican fusion and the end result was a hit!

So, go hit up Pinterest and get some inspiration. Don’t worry about following an exact recipe, just find a starting point.
